The Canberra Glassworks is unique to Australia—a state of the art glassmaking facility and gallery located in the oldest public building in Canberra.
Canberra Glassworks is a hub of creativity! With a mix of glass science, a bit of local history and a lot of art creation, this exciting trilogy can be enjoyed day or night.
Bring your students on a journey of discovery through the Canberra Glassworks. See glass in its many different forms. Inspect the material properties of glass and learn how artists use it to make artwork. Learn about the historic Kingston Powerhouse and how it first powered Canberra.
After your Discovery Tour of the historic Kingston Powerhouse, your class will make their own artworks. They will learn how to cut and fuse glass while designing and making a coloured glass coaster.
Have the full experience and engage your students on all levels.
In this small conceptual art class, students will spend time viewing and discussing the current exhibition themes and concepts. Guided by an artist or curator, students will examine how artists have explored the theme and interpreted this into finished works of art.
The Glass and Science Tour aims to give students an understanding of the scientific properties of glass.
